R|A|P Cover Art Kane

Art Kane’s eponymous book was just published by Reel Art Press. It was a great pleasure for Govinda Gallery to host Kane’s first exhibition Art Kane: Photographs 13 years ago. His photos were also featured in the much talked about touring museum exhibition Sound & Vision: Monumental Rock and Roll Photographs. Kane is well known for his photo of many of the greatest jazz musicians of the day posing outside a brownstone in 1958 known all over the world as “A Great Day in Harlem”.

Among the subjects featured in Kane’s book are Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Joe Frazier, Brian Jones, Sonny and Cher, Whitney Houston, Janis Joplin, Cicely Tyson, Tim Curry, Jeff Beck, and Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Carter along with beautiful models and imaginative landscapes.
